DIY is an abbreviation of Do It Yourself, and means you do the work yourself rather than hire a professional or buying a pre-built object.

Example of DIY:

Buying organic herbs in the grocery store is becoming more expensive day by day. However, an alternative method is to ‘Do it yourself’, where anyone can start growing their own herbs indoor from seeds in a small container and start enjoying their own supply once they have grown.
